As much as hardcore and thrash metal feeds off of aggression and challenging societal norms, Hyderabad, India-based NYHC influenced band R.A.I.D would pleasantly alter this belief with their Positive Mental Attitude (PMA) based ideology.
Beyond their PMA based lyrical content, the band brings together relentless double-bass drumming, groove-laden guitar work and the occasional breakdown. Following their sophomore album Imperium released in 2019 through Rottweiler Records, the hardcore/crossover thrash band has released a new song called “Alpha.”
Frontman Rueban Issac says about the track, “The song Alpha is based on a quote by Muhammad Ali; “Don’t quit, suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.” A real alpha man/woman will do whatever it takes to achieve his/her goals, even if it means standing alone.”
Alpha is the first single taken from the band’s soon-to-be-released third album. The album will be released early this year and announcements on the title and release date of the new album will be revealed soon.
